RG Rough / Makoto Kawabata: RG Rough / Makoto Kawabata [VINYL RSD] (Bam Balam Records)

A Record Store Day 2020 LP of the collaboration between Acid Mothers Temple guitarist Kawabata Makoto and French/British multi-instrumentalis RG Rough, using guitar drones, electronics, concrete sounds and percussion to create a sonic junble, occasionally soothed by a near-lullaby, only to be subsumed by a cascade of strings or fades into a repetitive minimal piano figure.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"RSD 2020 release. A collaboration between Makoto Kawabata (leader of the legendary Japanese psychedelic band, Acid Mothers Temple ) and the French/British multi-instrumentalist RG Rough. The pair create an unsettling sonic jungle in which Makoto's guitar drones multiply, intertwine, and collide with a wide variety of electronic and concrete sounds and percussion. On two occasions a soft, sleepy sounding voice comes out of nowhere and whispers a strange lullaby which soon disappears under a cascade of strings or fades into a repetitive minimal piano figure..."-Bam Balam Records
